Hi, I have several DC’s , CC’s and memberships (such as prime/paytm first)

By listings (and how I use it) :

Amex Gold Charge Card with Amex MRCC CC (companion card) : I use it it for 6x 1000 trxns for 1k points, 4x 1000 trxns for MRCC per month on PayTM. I also have a recurring charge on charge card of 9k/month ($118 – international charge) So this way, no annual fee.

SBI Simply Click – I don’t use it at all to be honest. Not really sure why. I use Apay card at amazon so not sure why to keep unless there is a amazon/FK offer as 1500 off or something at Diwali.

PayTM CitiBank – Same as SBI , not really use it. I got PayTM first membership with it, so I get 30r wallet add pr month. That’s it.

ICICI Apay : Major use. Use it at amazon mostly though or any retail use (1% or I use citi as it gives 1% in credit statement not apay) and then with merchants such as dominos for 2%.

ICICI Coral : No use at all apart from airport lounges.

Kotak Royale Signature: OMG, Haven’t seen they billed me anything frm last 6 months except once for annual fee. No use apart from specific offer at zomato/swiggy/amazon.

DC’s : Paytm rupay : Airport lounges, Kotak DC Classic : No use, ICICI DC: No use apart frm withdrawals , SBI DC : No use. Digibank DC : No use.

Paytm first : may be movies discount, wallet add 30 cb, air travel.
Zomato gold : 300 free with min 300 dish. (pr day)
Prime : PVideo.
FK Plus : Youtube premium?

Have netbankng of HDFC, SBI, ICICI, KOTAK.

Have Bajaj card (EMI).

Looking for advise how to get more and more benefits out of all these. Is there something I don’t know? My usage generally is 90% online and what’s not online is in paytm to pay retail or groceries at REL.

As you have hdfc account, get one of their CC that you get eligible for and millennia dc. They have good promotions and cashback.

I think you are already maximizing the benefits of your cards.
The only for better benefits would be going for higher cards but they would generally attract fees and higher waivers. Go for them only if your spends are going to be higher.
Otherwise you seem to have descent set of cards.

I have a current account with HDFC. I have never been really interested in HDFC card and to get one it’s the most easiest to be honest.

I’ll surely check what options are there which can suit my spending.

I’m already paying for Kotak royale annual fee and prolly SBI as I won’t meet spending criteria, so going for any higher wouldn’t be a good plan here I think.

The only card I want now is Axis FK and that’s the only card I have been declined twice for.

You can use kotak Royale signature card for train ticket bookings, no additional charges for this kotak card for both IRCTC as Well as counter bookings.
